Annotating your items
Except for the Note item type, every other item type in Secrets has a "Notes" field. You can use that field to place any information that doesn't fit in the other existing fields. If you're migrating from another app that supports custom fields, this would be where you'd place that information.
Both the "Text" field in the Note item type and the "Notes" field in the other item types support a subset of the Markdown syntax so you can format it nicely.
When editing note content, you can use simple syntax to style your text with bold or italic, create links, and even conceal sensitive data.
You can style text with bold or italic or even strike through it.
|Bold||**||This **word** is in bold||This word is bold|
|Italic||*||This *word* is in italic||This word is in italic|
|Strikethrough||~~||This ~~word~~ is struck through||This |
|Bold and Italic||***||This ***word*** is in bold and italic||This word is in bold and italic|
|Monospaced||`||`This *text* uses a *monospaced* ~font~ and is unformatted.`|
For example, if you want to store your passport information in Secrets, you could create a Note item titled "Passport" and then type in details using the format:
**Number:** 12345 **Expiration Date:** 2025/12/07 **Nationality:** Portuguese
Which will be rendered like this:
Expiration Date: 2025/12/07
You can also add links to your text:
This is a link to [Secrets's website](https://secrets.app).
Which will render as:
This is a link to Secrets's website.
Finally, Secrets extends Markdown with another syntax for concealing sensitive data. This is useful, for example, if you have a Note item with codes for your building's entrance or alarm.
**Door Code:** ^(concealed: true)
Or if you're storing security questions in the notes field of a Login item.
Mother maiden name? ^[some random answer](concealed: true)
When using the
concealed extension, the content is hidden unless you tap/click the button with an eye symbol.
